Ingredients

  • 4 large russet potatoes
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 2-3 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 3 garlic cloves peeled and crushed
  • 2 cup vegetable broth
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Peel the potatoes, cut off the ends (use them in soup!), and cut them into about 1 ½-inch thick pieces. Pat the pieces with paper towel to remove some of the starch.
  • Preheat the oven to 450°F .
  • In a large, oven-safe skillet, heat up the oil over medium-high heat.
    Place the potatoes into the skillet and fry for about 5-7 minutes, until the
    potatoes turn golden brown. Sprinkle them with some salt and pepper as they
    fry.
  • Flip the potatoes over, sprinkle with salt and pepper again, and, as they cook, use a paper towel held with tongs and try to remove some of the oil from the skillet.
  • Add the butter, rosemary sprigs, and garlic
    and fry the potatoes for about 3-4 minutes; then add the vegetable broth.
    Transfer the skillet to the hot oven.
  • Bake for about 30-35 minutes, until the potatoes are cooked through. (Pierce one of the potatoes with a toothpick or a knife to check if they are cooked).
  • Garnish the potatoes with fresh rosemary
    sprigs, drizzle on some of the remaining liquid from the pan, or even make a
    gravy.* Enjoy!

Notes

*HOW TO MAKE GRAVY.
If you’d like to make a tasty gravy to pour over these potatoes, you most certainly can. 🙂 To do so, remove the potatoes from the skillet and place the skillet on the stovetop over medium heat. Sprinkle about 1 tablespoon of flour into it. Quickly stir with a wire whisk so that the flour gets incorporated into the drippings. Cook for a few minutes and slowly add in about 1/2 of the vegetable broth. Allow the gravy to simmer and thicken until it reaches the desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper, if needed.
